    I think the top could be fitted better but, it’s ultimately is up to u on what you prefer.

    I haven’t been through the alterations stage yet. Do they charge you for having to look at the dress? I mean i think it looks good and you say it feels good so I wouldn’t see why not but if you want more of a professionals opinion I’d say take it in. Sometimes its hard to see in the pics. Also in the end remember it’s really about how you feel in it. Either way gorgeous dress you will look amazing on your wedding day.

    I didn’t get charged for the appointment.  I would consider getting the top fitted a bit more.  It will show off your curves more where right now it looks just a tad too big on you around the bust and waist.  Make sure you put on shapewear if you are going to be wearing it though, and get the alterations marked with it on.

    I think it looks fine if you wear a nice supportive bra or corset. :)I love your dress by the way.

    Looks like it could be taken in under the bust area, and right around the waist.

    It’s too wide in the waist. The sleeves also look a little droopy.

    MsPate:  Very pretty! Looks like the bust and waist should be taken in if you want a perfect fit. The bust looseness could be caused by lack of bra though, and might fit better once the girls are hoisted up. You’re going to look great!

    I agree with some of the other comments above. I think you should get the top taken in on a bit. It’s a lovely dress, but it needs to give you a perfect fit.

    You should go to the appointment. I think it could be taken in a tad on top, and it will flatter you even more.
